Our Kobudo

Our dojo offers instruction in Yamashita-Matayoshi Kobudo. Training in Kobudo is the perfect compliment to your Karate training and will increase your knowledge and understanding of Karate as the two are traditionally viewed as two wheels on the same cart.


Yamashita-Matayoshi Kobudo emphasizes use of the bo (six-foot staff), sai (truncheon), nunchaku (flail), kama (sickle), and tonfa (side-armed club), but also teaches eaku (oar), nunti-bo (spear), kuwa (ho), jo (four-foot staff), and fist-loaded weapons such as te'chu and tekko, and shinko.
